GIVE ME A KISS

Give me a kiss and I'll tell you a tale
Of butterfly wings that flutter and sail
They tumble and twist, but when they are still
They make your heart throb at the wonder and thrill

So dainty and light they are swept by the wind
You could never imagine the strength from within
How in the world do they manage to go
On a round trip vacation to old Mexico?

We think we invented all manner of flight
But we're awed and appalled at the butterfly's might

Give me a hug and I'll tell you a tale
About the impossible feats of a whale
He spews out a fountain of mystical mist
And speaks with a whale-like linguistical twist

Like a rocket he suddenly propels from the sea
Laborious and glorious, victoriously free
He dapperly dives to the deep darkest depth
Maintaining his grace and sustaining his breath

We think that we've conquered the oceans we sail
Still confused and bemused by the cues of a whale

Sit on my lap and we'll talk of a bird
That sings the most beautiful song ever heard
From a tropical palm tree the Sabia sings
His music is honored by poets and kings

His melodies tease and pleasantly please
As they float over rivers and rain forest trees
They enrich and bewitch other birds all around
Who are lured to his tree by the musical sound

We think we produce the best music by far
But the Sabia laughs at our small repertoire

So give me a hug and a kiss and we'll look
At butterfly wings in your butterfly book
Come here to Grandma and listen to tales
We'll ponder the wonder of wonderful whales
We'll try to imagine the Sabia's song
That has captured and raptured his realm all along

Please give me a kiss, it's time now for bed
Let the butterflies tumble and twirl in your head
Grab onto a whale - Swim into the deep
Let the Sabia's music put you to sleep

Nicely done. The magic of butterflies, flitting by, took me with you.

Oh my, I'm almost jumping up and down with pleasure on this one. Excellent job, I love the format, the meter, the rhyme and the subject matter. What a way to bring yourself in to Passions. Applauds fervently!!! Well done and welcome to Passions
